You often are making boxes Klaus and every time I like to watch them. I can see the joy you must have building them.

Klaus , the hammer look is great, must of been hard to wax up. ha. I also like the way you did the legs. I love the look of those soss hinges too. That will be someone’s treasure for Christmas.
I bought some of those soss hinges but I need to practice. I keep doing something wrong, not lining up perfect.

Nice one Klaus.,that must be sh,sawn veneer to texture it like that. 1/8”? 3/16”?
Whatever it is, it is magnificent. One of your best and I like them all.

Klaus, another beauty. I like the texturing and the legs, especially. A bit of an Asian feel…...
The inward taper and the legs give it a solid presence.
